Homes across Arnold suffering with little or no water


Home across Arnold are suffering with little or no water pressure as demand has rocketed during the hot, sunny weather.

Severn Trent Water has confirmed they are currently experiencing problems in the NG5 area with some customers seeing low pressure while others are receiving no water at all.

The company said that issues in the NG5 are were due to ‘air locks causing outages and interruptions to the water supply’.

They said they now have ‘two teams of technicians and engineers working in the NG5 area to remove the air locks’.

They have also now brought numerous water tankers into the local area to assist their efforts with direct injection of water into the local network.

A spokesman said: “With loads of people at home and with the hot weather continuing, we’re seeing massive demand for water at the moment and people are using it as fast as we can make it. This is only temporary and your supply will return to normal later.

“We’re really sorry if this is happening but we wanted to let you know we’re working round the clock to produce the water you need to wash your hands or have a shower or a drink of water.”

Councillor Michael Payne, the deputy leader of the council who represents the Redhill ward for Labour said he had been in touch with the water firm to raise the issue about the outages.

He said: “I have spoken to a senior officer at Severn Trent Water who has provided an update on the water supply outage and interruptions affecting NG5 and other areas across Nottinghamshire.

“I have asked to be kept updated on the issue and will provide further information and updates for you as and when I can.”

Severn Trent Water have asked households to help them resolve the issue by ‘being sensible with water’.

They said: “You can help us resolve the issue by being as sensible with water as possible once supply resumes for your household, this is particularly the case at peak times, which are currently around 9am in the morning and at tea time in the early evening.
